Gator Fans Not Snapping Up Bowl Tickets

The folks in Jacksonville surely expected a better fan response when they matched Urban Meyer’s old school against Urban Meyer’s new school in the Gator Bowl.  Unfortunately for the selection committee, like Meyer, it seems many UF fans won’t be in the stadium for the game.

The Gainesville Sun reports that Florida has sold just 8,000 of its allotted 15,000 tickets to the January 2nd bowl game. 

For all the talk of “best fans in the world” — and every SEC school claims that — the reality is that the majority of fans won’t spend, attend, or travel unless their school is winning.  That’s true all across the league.

And at Florida, 6-6 is not considered winning.

Speaking as a Gator season ticket holder and a Jacksonville (DDUUUUVAAAALLLLL) Resident who is 50-50 on going to the game... You wouldn't run to go watch that dumpster fire hit by a drunk driving a station wagon that was our offense this year. The Gator ticket office is trying, TRUST ME! There's nothing to sell "HEY GATOR FANS!!! Cancel all fun New Years plans of going out of town and drive 10 minutes from your house to see your team play where they already play once a year, now twice, where you go every other Sunday.... Remember how you vomited in your aisle watching our offense after paying 1478 dollars for two tickets? Well how bout you pay 130 more for a pair to watch your team finally lose to Yankees you can't stand"

ESPN is just going to make a mockery of UF and ramble on about how Ohio State now has the best coach in College football. Why would anyone pay to go to this game let alone watch it on TV? UF is about to lose all their coordinators and their Offensive Coordinator already left for Kansas.
